Enea Bastianini arrache the victoire en Aragon

The Italian surprised his compatriot Francesco Bagnaia in the last lap to win, thus making the game of a Fabio Quartararo victim of a fall in the first lap.

Italian Enea Bastianini won the Aragon Grand Prix on Sunday, the 15th round of the MotoGP season in Spain, while world championship leader, Frenchman Fabio Quartararo, was forced to retire. The Ducati-Gresini rider won ahead of the poleman, his compatriot Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati), second in the MotoGP world championship. Spaniard Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia) finished 3rd.

«The race was great for me from the start (…) I made some mistakes during the race but in the end I won, it’s almost a dream“said Bastinaini, 4th overall. The two Italians fought a good battle for first place until the end, Bastianini overtaking his future teammate at Ducati next season on the very last lap of the GP. “I did not see myself overtaking Enea again because I had already taken too many risks in the previous laps.Bagnaia explained on arrival.

With twenty points recovered overall, the Turinese still achieved a good operation and is now only ten points behind in the championship on Quartararo, who gave up after a collision with the Spaniard Marc Marquez (Honda), also forced to abandonment. Starting 6th on the grid, the Frenchman fell heavily in the first lap of the GP, after hitting Marquez’s bike from behind, returning to competition after three months of absence due to an arm operation.
